Change is uncomfortable, but healthcare-related professionals are well adapted to ongoing evolution within their roles. There have been incredible advancements in medicine and technology over the past century. All the while, the Health Information (HI) Profession has adapted to these advancements. AHIMA traces its origin back to 1928 and what the profession was at that time is certainly not what we consider it today. How we understand the profession today, is unlikely to persist into the future.

This panel discussion will start by examining the history and development of the HI profession, with a review of past and current workforce trends, and a offer predictions of what the future of the profession will look like. Panelists will describe how organizations, educational institutions, and professional organizations can develop experiential learning opportunities to help meet those developing workforce needs through the upskilling of current and emerging professionals.

Finally, there will be discussion of how HI professionals should prepare for the future, and how organizations can prepare their own succession planning models to adapt to changing needs. Audience engagement and questions will be encouraged through active polling opportunities and dedicated time for Q&A.

Healthcare organizations must carefully assess where they stand on how and when to use this technology to improve workflows, create compliant policies, and streamline administrative tasks.

Learner Objectives:

  • Define and discuss the use cases for AI in healthcare administrative tasks
  • Explore the applications of appropriate prompts for AI tools, such as ChatGPT

The U.S. Supreme Court’s recent ruling reversing the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision has forced many states to consider updating their legislation on the topic of abortion. The polarizing nature of this ruling means that covered entities and their practices will be in the cross-hairs of additional state and federal legislation. State legislation may mean health agencies’ designated record sets (DRS) must include (or exclude) information relating to pregnancy or reproductive health. These potentially new regulations could create additional sensitive information categories for electronic medical record (EMR) systems to manage, and, especially, for release of information (ROI) professionals to navigate. This presentation will discuss this, along with some helpful ways to ensure your EMRs are setup and staff are trained to manage this every changing landscape.

A case study of how Hartford Healthcare in Connecticut and Charter Oak State College (part of the CT University system) utilized a grant to partner to educate 150 adults on revenue cycle management roles and concepts. Not only were participants able to take the courses for free, but they were given a laptop and, upon successful completion of each course, they received a stipend. In turn, Hartford Healthcare was able to interview all of the participants for their many openings in revenue cycle management positions. Learn how you could replicate this innovative program to grow your own employees for hard to fill positions!
